3-Year-Old Child Gets Fingers Stuck in Escalator

A three-year-old girl had a lucky escape after she got her teeny-tiny fingers stuck in an escalator.

The little girl was sitting on an escalator in a shopping centre in China. When she got to the top, she didn't get up in time and her fingers slipped inside it. Firefighers were called to help the girl, but even they couldn't budge her hand.

In the end technicians arrived and had to take the escalator apart to free the little girl. She was taken to hospital where X-rays showed a finger bent out of place.

Watch the video report above to see footage of the rescue.

Toddlers, eh? In the past we've met not one, but two children who got caught in toy machines, and a toilet-training tot who got his potty stuck on his head!
